Ukraine: FEMEN activist dresses as cupid for Valentine court hearing

Ukraine, Kiev
February 14, 2018 at 13:25 GMT -00:00 · Published

Angelina Diash, a FEMEN activist arrived at her hearing at Pechersky district court in Kiev dressed as cupid, to symbolise the love between Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and the President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko, on Wednesday.

Diash wore a shirt reading 'Poroh+Luka', referring to relations between Poroshenko and Lukashenko.

Though the hearing on her case of hooliganism ended up being postponed, Diash still managed to get her message across; "My image of cupid symbolizes what is love. These are people who look in one direction. I can say that [Alexander] Lukashenko and [Petro] Poroshenko, as I said today, look in one direction because they are for dictatorship and against democracy," she said.

Diash faces trial for hooliganism after showing her breasts with the message "long live Belarus" during a press conference of Poroshenko and Lukashenko in July last year.

Diash could face between two years and five years in prison.
